Twenty-one years of wave forecast verification
Année de publication
A review of 21 years of wave verification results shows clear improvements in the quality of wave forecasting, as will be illustrated in this article for significant wave height forecasts. The comparison project has benefitted all participants and should continue to do so. However, the informal character of the exchange prevents a rapid adaptation to new data. For these reasons, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is seeking to establish a Lead Centre for Wave Forecast Verification (LC-WFV) with clearly defined interfaces between the participants and the Lead Centre. ECMWF has expressed its interest in becoming the designated Lead Centre.
